NAME OF STARTUP:: NeuronSW SE
FOUNDED IN (Year): 2016
FOUNDER’S NAME: Pavel Konečný
THE IDEA: What is the problem being solved by your startup / business?:
The Czech startup Neuron soundware develops technology for automated predictive maintenance of industry machinery.
Using sound/vibration analysis of the machines, the technology enables it to detect imminent failures that would mean costly repairs and production outages.
THE FOUNDER’S STORY: When and how did you come up with the idea for the business?:
Pavel Konečný graduated in cybernetics and biomedical engineering. He began his career in the IT consulting company Accenture, where he participated in more than 35 technological and strategic projects for 25 clients on 3 continents.
He was considered one of the most innovative members of the team who designed the innovation every day.
Colleagues were frequently asking why he didn’t try to start his own business, but they got the same answer for 10 years: “I’m waiting for the computers to be so powerful that artificial intelligence can be used efficiently.”
The time has come 4 years ago when Neuron soundware was established – a Czech start-up that listens to machines and using artificial intelligence can predict failures and malfunctions of machines.
WHO IS THE CUSTOMER: What is the typical profile of your target customer? Where would they be located?:
Manufacturers, plant managers, production managers, maintenance managers
LESSONS TO SHARE: What 3 key lessons from your startup journey you’d like to share with aspiring entrepreneurs?:
The Czech startup Neuron soundware develops technology for automated predictive maintenance of industry machinery. Using sound/vibration analysis of the machines, the technology enables it to detect imminent failures that would mean costly repairs and production outages.
The technology is based on the combination of artificial intelligence built on neural networks and machine learning, and IoT device nBox, which is receiving and processing the data from sensors.
The Neuron soundware technology is being used by clients in their operations all over the world from the Prague Public Transport Company to the manufacturer of semiconductors in Malaysia.
